Did Richard, Duke of York, the younger of the Princes on the Tower, survive his imprisonment? In this revealing new book medieval historian David Baldwin presents an original and intriguing scenario. On 27 December 1550 an old man named Richard Plantagenet was buried at Eastwell in Kent. He had spent much of his life working as a bricklayer at St John's Abbey, Colchester, but, unusually for a bricklayer, he could read Latin. Reluctant to give any account of his background, he eventually told his employer that he was a natural son of Richard III. Yet, if this was true, why was he not publicly acknowledged by the king? Richard III made provision for his other bastards, John of Gloucester and Katherine. The fact that he was called Richard Plantagenet is also revealing. Had he simply been Richard III's bastard, he would have been styled 'of Gloucester' or given the name of his birthplace. And, most tellingly of all, where is the evidence that Prince Richard actually died? David Baldwin opens up an entirely new line of investigation and offers a startling solution to one of the most enduring mysteries in English history and a final exoneration for Richard III.

Summary: What happened to the Princes in the Tower remains to this day a mystery of English history. The Princes were the two sons of King Edward IV of England, and the elder prince became king in April 1483. But six weeks later, the boys' uncle, Richard, proclaimed himself king and the Princes, who were living in the Tower of London, were never seen again. Richard's assumed role in the murder of the princes has colored popular views of Richard III to this day - he is widely portrayed as hunched in body and evil in mind.
